Heads South in Concert

Event information

A dazzling set from a superb jazz quintet brimming with infectious high-energy grooves and distinctive melodies à la Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club. Weaving cool Latin rhythms with Cuban cha-cha vibes, enthralling originals with beloved classics, this is exhilarating, heartfelt and a whole lot of fun. An incomparable evening of wonderful music. 'The musicianship is impeccable… they play with a real feel and spirit for the music.' The Times ______________________________________________________________________ Heads South are a seriously talented five-piece featuring a refreshing cultural mix of players with outstanding jazz credentials, from top-flight UK jazz trumpeter Steve Waterman and charismatic Cuban percussionist Chino Martell Morgan, to John Harriman on piano and organ, Venezuelan bassist Adolfredo Pulido and versatile drummer Buster Birch. Supported by JazzUK (formerly Jazz Services) and the National Rural Touring Forum. ______________________________________________________________________ 'A spare, crisp, invigorating set of Latin jazz... Steve Waterman's mastery of this idiom is quite outstanding – spiced with just the right touch of bravura.' The Observer
